Recorded mostly 'live in the studio' over two days in early May 2019, The Lost Arc is as much of an event as it is an album – it marks the arrival of The Achievers as a new force in British Blues & Roots songwriting. The fruit of a dedicated co-writing brotherhood, The Lost Arc is deliberately loose, quirky and intimate. Instantly catchy and irreverent, the ten tracks whizz by in 29 soulful, fat-free minutes.
